important information for racehorse owners


We are pleased to be able to welcome back owners to our racecourses in line with the Government’s roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions.


As part of a phased, risk-managed approach, attendance at our racecourses from April 12th will be limited to a maximum of six owners per horse, unless when stipulated otherwise. Owners attending must comply with our terms and conditions of entry and the Government restrictions, including regarding social mixing between households.


Light refreshments will be available and there will be no time limit on how long owners are permitted to remain on course.


We wish you every success on the day and look forward to you joining us at our racecourse soon.


Further information and more details are available in the BHA's Owners Guide.
